Facebook is now allowing users to combine their broadcasts when going live. The app lets you invite a friend to share the live stream screen even when you’re not in the same place.
The 'Live With' feature, which was initially offered to public figures, is now available to all users and pages going live using iOS.

"To invite a friend to join you in your live video, simply select a guest from the Live Viewers section, or tap a comment from the viewer you want to invite. Your viewer can then choose whether or not to join your broadcast," Facebook said in a statement.
With both portrait and landscape modes supported, it is only a matter of time before users start sharing live streams. No announcement was made on when Facebook expects this feature to come to Android.
This update also comes with the ability for live-streaming users to start conversing directly through a private chat during the broadcast. Facebook calls these updates more “fun” and “social” recent additions to the feature.

Given the recent history of live-streamed murders, it is only a matter of time when Facebook was to turn their attention to live streaming tools. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has already pledged to add 3,000 moderators to review videos and flagged reports.
